India building collapse near Mumbai kills 45

Help

At least 45 people have died, including 15 children, after a building being constructed illegally collapsed near the Indian city of Mumbai, police say.

About 70 people were injured and many are feared trapped beneath the seven-storey bloc in Thane after the incident on Thursday evening.

Building work was going on even though four floors were already occupied. A search for survivors is continuing.
